The idea of “Koolulam” came to Or Taicher’s mind six years ago.
In those ten days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, Or watched the mass prayer in the Western Wall on Yom Kippur eve, which was attended by tens of thousands of people. That show of unity shook him to his core, especially during those days when he felt like the social discourse in Israel was forceful and intolerant. Instantly he asked himself – Can this prayer become a social prayer? A prayer that carries the belief that even for a short while, we are all one. No walls, no discrimination, no racism. Only thousands of people uniting to create one pure and extraordinary moment of solidarity.
Yom Kippur is a day for soul-searching and forgiveness, and also for cleansing the head and soul. We hope this day will do wonders on your heart. Have an easy fast and may you be signed and sealed in the book of life
